Nearly two years after the Library and KCPT-Kansas City PBS launched an examination of affordable housing in the city, what has changed? Mayor Quinton Lucas, who campaigned on the issue, joins a panel discussion and assessment of where KC now stands and might be headed. KCPT’s Nick Haines moderates.
One year ago, voters overwhelmingly approved an 8-cent increase in the Library’s property tax-based operating levy. Thanks to that support and funding, the Library has been doing even more for our community, and we are sharing our progress in the Library’s Next Chapter. Learn what's happening at your neighborhood location, discover new or expanded services, and see how we’re improving patron experiences.
The Library's signature events bring nationally known authors, local historians, civic voices, political leaders, and others to Kansas City audiences. Now you have increased access the ideas and topics covered in these programs: We're creating a growing collection of archived online event videos available to the public. Watch anywhere, on your own time, for free.
Staying informed about what’s happening in your community, nation, and world is now easier than ever, thanks to PressReader, the latest addition to the Library’s collection of digital services. PressReader gives you one place to manage the news, and your Kansas City Public Library card gets you free and unlimited access to over 6,000 newspapers and magazines from around the world, in 60-plus languages… no subscriptions required.
